Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 2nd March 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Borussia-Park (Mönchengladbach).
Bayern has cut down Dortmund’s lead at the top by four points in the last three match-days. Three more remains, and other than a direct confrontation with the league-toppers, this one should be the sternest test the team will have to face in their quest for the title.
Monchengladbach currently is the third side in the table and has next year’s Champions League almost in sights. But, since Leipzig, their immediate rival, has an easier fixture this weekend, it’s critical that the team doesn’t stumble against the defending champions.
Coming to the Bavarians, the team has held its pride on the road, even during this difficult season for them. They are the best team away from home bar none and has recorded the most away goals as well. Whereas, Monchengladbach complements it well with their good home record in 2018-19.
The best fixture that Bundesliga has to offer this match-day, for sure.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich Prediction
Either has no option but to attack. The time to play it safe has been far over. Bayern cannot concede any more ground to Dortmund in their title race, and Monchengladbach is wary of the threat offered by Leipzig from just below, especially considering that they have a tie against the last-placed squad in the league table, Nurnberg, this same match-day.
So, we have established that both will stick to attacking the football. Now, it’s justified by the fact that both have frontlines to die for and finds great pride in their exploits. Monchengladbach has scored the second-most number of goals at home, eclipsed just by Dortmund, while Bayern has recorded the most on the road.
Moreover, the hosts for this tie, have registered two or more goals in 12 of their last 15 home ties, and in 16 of their last 21. Bayern, meanwhile, went further ahead and recorded three or more in six of their last nine games on the road, and two or more in 18 of their last 23.
Additionally, six of the last eight Munich games had goals at either end of the pitch, and so did four of their last five on the road. And finally, two of the last three h2h encounters at this venue satisfied the condition as well.
On basis of these observations, we infer that the best pick for the game is BTTS and O 2.5 Goals.
